Timeline: 1991 - 2021
On December 1, Sikkuy-Aufoq celebrated 30 years since its founding with a hybrid in person and online event celebrating the work we have done over the past three decades to advance equality between Jewish and Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel and create a shared society in Israel.
Watch the event!
Sikkuy-Aufoq was founded in 1991 as the first shared Jewish-Arab advocacy organization. Its founding marked the first time Jewish and Arab-Palestinian citizens together created an organization working for equality using advocacy tools targeting policy change on a national level. For the past year, we’ve been digitizing archival documents tracing key moments from our 30-year history. Read more about the organization’s history and the ways it reflects the larger history of Jewish-Arab relations in Israel, and stay tuned as our digital archive makes its way online.
Sikkuy-Aufoq is proud to launch a year-long collaboration with the Arab-Jewish Cultural Center Beit HaGefen that will invite Jewish and Arab-Palestinian citizens to explore the meaning of shared society through their art.
In 1991, an Arab and a Jew formed a shared nonprofit. What has changed since, and how do those changes reflect the changing relationships between Jewish and Arab citizens in society at large? Watch our story.
